Johnny Burnette: Dreamin’


This was Burnette’s third single, reaching No 11 in America and No 5 in Britain in 1960. It was written by Barry De Vorzon and Ted Ellis. In 1964 Burnette drowned in a boating accident on Clear Lake, California, when his unlit fishing boat was hit by a cabin cruiser. He was 30.

This is the record.

I assume he is miming here but the sound quality is poor and the cameraman seems more interested in the audience than the singer.
